Exploring Relationships with the Census

The folks at the Knight/Mozilla OpenNews Source blog recently asked me to write about a Census topic of my choosing, and I chose to focus on a lesser-traveled piece of Census data: relationships.

The post, Understanding Households and Relationships in Census Data, walks through the definitions the Census Bureau uses for householders and relatives, how it asks the questions and tabulates the results, and some of the key tables that report the data. Thanks to the OpenNews team for letting me dust off my Census know-how!
